Justin Bieber is Most Searched Name By Online Kids

What a generation gap! Current teen sensation Justin Bieber and late Beatles legend John Lennon are the top online entertainment searches conducted by kids. Really? Really.
According to Norton Online Family, the top searched item for kids online is current teen pop phenomenon Justin Bieber. Shocking? Not even. The Bieb is the icon and emblem of the plugged in generation, and he Tweets, has a movie coming out, a new set of dolls on the way and is an Internet star who got his start via YouTube. It makes sense that he is the most searched person/name among kids on the web.
But Lennon? He's been dead for so many years that the parents of the kids searching for him online were kids when he died! Perhaps the inclusion of the Beatles catalog on iTunes last year helped stoke the fire of interest in Lennon? Perhaps it’s his mythos and lore? Or are kids these days smart and inquisitive about some of pop's best music?
Who would you search for first: Justin Bieber or John Lennon?
